School groups meet virtually
2-10 October 2021
Projects to give your students the opportunity to get together with their peers in different IH schools.
IHWO will facilitate different schools bringing their students together, but the specific logistics will be managed by the schools participating. For queries please mail email@example.com
In a one hour zoom session, a group of 6 (max) students will teach their own language to their “matched school”, and then learn the other language in return. (For example, students from IH Bucharest teach Romanian to a group of students from IH Veracruz, and they teach Spanish in return.)
We become richer every time we meet people from other cultures, because:
“Most of the important lessons about life have come from recognizing how others from a different culture view things” — Edgar H. Schein
It used to be so easy to experience another culture. You could hop on a plane and, within a few hours, find yourselves in a different country, immersed in a different culture. That is not so easy now, and there are some far flung places you would probably never would have visited.
Meeting virtually can recreate that experience.
Each group has 30 mins + Q&A
This will usually be just one single event. (If individual pairs of schools want follow events that is up to them!)
Both groups are learning English, so will use English as all the discussion around this. There will also be opportunities to introduce aspects of cultural interest from their own country.
(Schools will be given the opportunity in the sign-up to match more than once – so it could be that a group of three is formed, but this is not necessary)
The young learner division of IH Bucharest has done this. They initiated a Cultural Education Programme where they brought together online, via Zoom, children from Romania and from one other country. It was a huge success!
